Private Equity

The private equity industry currently enjoys an unprecedented opportunity to leverage rapid globalisation and a period of strong corporate liquidity. At the same time, the past several years of economic and business volatility have resulted in an increasingly complex business landscape, including new legal and regulatory challenges. As a result, private equity firms are experiencing longer hold times for portfolio companies, and an altered market for acquisition and divestitures. In addition, the limited partner community desires additional transparency and comfort around the private equity firms in which they invest in.

FTI Consulting professionals work closely with some of the most dynamic companies in the private equity industry, helping them anticipate and effectively navigate through these challenges. Private equity experts at FTI Consulting help clients to minimise risks in all phases of the private equity transaction and maximise future deal returns.  FTI Consulting offers critical services that add value to each phase of the transaction, from the early stages of due diligence through portfolio company transitional periods and through portfolio performance management and, ultimately, divestiture.


Private equity professionals at FTI Consulting work across the globe – whether the deal is in a G8 nation, BRIC country or beyond – and deliver depth and diversity of expertise and years of practical experience.  Our team members include former chief executives and senior managers who offer strategy and execution perspectives, as well as highly specialised experts in areas such as financial and accounting due diligence; intellectual property; corporate investigation; corporate finance; forensic accounting; and strategic communications.  FTI Consulting holds leadership positions in many of these services and is able to respond to specific needs at each stage of the private equity transaction.
